Longtime fan but miss the old animation tools!
by odawni on 2021/02/23 18:54
I’ve been using Motionleap (AKA Pixaloop) for 2 years and it’s been my favorite animation app. I’ve recommended it to many digital artists interested in animating their images. Recently, the animation tool was changed and I find myself feeling frustrated because the quality of animation and versatility to animate images has decreased significantly. The animated vs non-animated parts of an image looks chunky and I miss using anchor points and the ability to animate separate portions of an image. In this new version, all sections of an image that are selected for animation get pulled by every arrows placed in an image. You can no longer animate parts of an image separately and I feel sad and frustrated every time I want to be able to do that. I still use Motionleap as my go-to animation app but I’ve been searching for another app that has animation tools more similar to the old version. PixaMotion is the closest I’ve found but Motionleap is superior in its other features and I don’t want to leave my dear Motionleap. Please bring the old animation tools back!! You changed a good thing!! Whyyyyyyyyyy???? Thanks for reading and considering my request! @fuschia.blue on IG
Re: New Animator/Motion Update
by Chingu103 on 2021/02/23 12:13
You guys why did you switch up the animation effect on the app?? There was literally nothing wrong with it! Using anchors enabled me to fine tune the process and the last update eliminated them. Now it's only freezing or unfreezing only. bring back Anchors please, literally the only thing I don't like about the update. Please bring them back!
Easy to learn and pretty cool
by Geet- on 2021/02/22 21:46
I was able to create cool animations in a few minutes!

Me encanta la aplicación!!! Tiene muchas opciones para editar y darle movimiento a tus imágenes . Cobran vida cien los efectos
They destroyed this fine app
by Not Dreaming on 2021/02/21 07:14
Not only did the new updates destroy the best animation features of this app, the developers responses are at best condescending. The fast and precise animation process has now been replaced by tiring finger painting that leaves hard edges to the animation fields... very unrealistic, the kind of “ tell tale” calling cards of poor digital art. Previously, the animations were convincing. No more. I subscribe to various art apps where I pay for elements - the items that can be added to your artworks. This is the only app I know of that TAKES AWAY the elements you pay for, than asks you to name the missing elements instead of admitting they’ve taken them away. Ok devs...where’s the super hero pack we all PAID for. And all the rest. They demand you subscribe to get all the elements. So you subscribe, they have your $, and then remove the reasons you subscribed. I am SO glad I subscribed for only a year. If I’d paid for a lifetime subscription only to see the devs take away the features that attracted me... MAN would I be upset. Pixeloop was great, used it every day. Now, I’m sad to even launch it. It simply can’t do what it used to regardless of what the devs tell you here. So, where are the animation features they removed? Why, they’re in ANOTHER App now, a terribly stripped down version of the original pixeloop! This speaks of greed and nothing more. Take away what your original sponsors paid for, fracture the apps, and expect people to buy them all to try to get what decent, considerate devs give you all in one app. This has forced me over to Werble, a much better-looking photo animator. I’ll come back to pixeloop, if it ever returns. But one star for the devs destruction of this apps most important feature. Last year I would have given it five. Seriously, avoid this app, who knows what they’ll take away from you next! Plus Horrible mistreatment of their customers (I think devs who do this, which is a form of theft since you paid for these items, should be kicked out of the App Store). From one artist to the next, these people will rip you off. Avoid.
Much Less Control Offered Now!
by DominoCA on 2021/02/21 07:09
Before the change to the “Motionleap” name, you could control path animation far better! Changing the length and location of arrows once gave you “move amount” and “speed” control, but not now, and WORST, the “anchors” (which, I remind you, so many similar apps still offer as a basic feature) are gone, meaning that with areas moving different ways, they now merge into each other in a glitchy, ugly way, and you can’t prevent that! The new, “dumbed down” path animation makes the app worth FAR less than before. Hey developer... here’s a rule this coder has learned applies to virtually ALL software updates of any kind: offering a simpler option, even putting it up front with the rest behind an (easy to find) “Advanced” button is okay... taking key features away is not. Worse, the only direct response I’ve seen to those complaints is “contact us”, individually, which is nonsense (and a real cop-out). Everyone reading reviews here DESERVES one of these replies, posted publicly on reviews that raise the issue: 1. a note explaining for any reader that the feature is still available somewhere (I strongly doubt it, as I’ve looked HARD, but since both app and company website lack any detailed “help” section, it’s possible), and “here’s where that button is found”, or 2. one of two honest replies, either: A. “That feature was costing too much for us to maintain, and we decided it wasn’t worth it, so if losing it is a deal-breaker, our app is no longer right for you - and if you paid for any length of subscription in advance, contact us for a refund.” Or B. “We’re sorry we removed these features from our app, and we realize now it was a poor decision. Look for an update with those features back in an “Advanced” view on (date here)”. Developer: please provide a direct, honest, PUBLIC response to the complaints of feature losses with the “Motionleap” versions of the app. Preferably, also provide a respectful answer to those “free” users who are justifiably upset about the removal of any “free” use of the path feature - not just the insulting “many features are free” response when you’ve removed the one that is arguably THE purpose of the app. I’ve been quite embarrassed to have encouraged friends to try this app out and have them find they’re unable to make a video with even the simplest version of motion effects.
Did not work for me
by Miltomic on 2021/02/20 16:26
Downloaded the app hoping to do some cool things with photos in edit, but in order to do so you have to purchase a “pro” plan. I tried to make the one time purchase of $60 to get access to all their features but I didn’t work. After confirming the purchase, I was stuck in a perpetual load screen and the app wouldn’t refresh. I thought maybe it was just a mistake but even after closing the app and reopening, the problem still persisted. Lost $90 total just trying to purchase the pro features. Receipts show in my PayPal but the app doesn’t work. Waste of time and money
Horrible downgrade in the update.
by OOTSfilm on 2021/02/19 19:19
I’ve been paying for this app for a while now and made some excellent motion art. The simplified animate effect has really limited the art I’m able to create in this app. Really disappointing.
Love it

by salad._.fingerS on 2021/02/18 04:16
This app is good and all it’s pretty easy to use and makes the photos great but you cant do anything without money. I don’t have any money so this is a problem. I just got this app to use for TikToks but I can’t export it without paying and it won’t let me screen record it either. If your broke don’t get this.
Please Help fix this Problem!
by TazureChang on 2021/02/17 17:13
So At the beginning of using this app for me in 2021 January, the app had multiple functions for me to animate my photos, but For some reason, There’s is now only two options for me to animate with, and that is “select” and “direction” which is awful. Is this a bug that needs fixing? Please help out! I really don’t like giving this that star rating, but I use this app all the time so please address this issue with my app.
Are you kidding me??!?
by Willow🦄 on 2021/02/16 22:15
I installed this app one or two years ago, and I thought it was super cool. After a while, I stopped using it. One day I decided I would use it again since I had just gone on a trip and took tons of pictures of waterfalls. *sigh* It took me half an hour to find it because they had changed the name from Pixleloop to Motionleap. When I finally found it I could not even use it because it had changed so much. :( It was cool before but now it is just boring.
Animation
by Pokemon_Master on 2021/02/16 21:54
Fix the animation controls, bring back the old menu with the anchors, speed, and other options. I pay for this app for I could use all of the functions but now it’s really difficult to edit the pictures. I used to love the app because it was so easy for mobile users but after the update it’s really not as friendly, I would like the anchors back or an option to turn the on or off at least. I really don’t wanna get PLOTAGRAPH but they are the ones with a user friendly interface, motion leap was my go to easy as pie editing tool, now it’s the one app I’ll just delete in a few weeks if no update fixes this.

Dumbed Down
by True party king on 2021/02/15 19:50
Used to love this app but now that they removed a bunch of features like anchor points, the animations you can create are far more limited than they used to be. Why would you REMOVE basic features?
I love it!
by Turleycat on 2021/02/15 09:35
This is a great app. It’s very fun to use and I like making gifs and videos! I haven’t spotted any bugs yet. It’s fun to make animations on here. I’m glad I downloaded this app. I learnt how to make an animation in 1 day. I love how easy it is to make effects. For example, I can make smoke effect all I have to do is highlight then boom. I have the smoke effect. This is a really great app I highly recommend it. You should definitely download this. And I am not one of those bots to put good reviews, this a real review.

Suddenly fees? A problem.
by GG Ermaine on 2021/02/12 06:58
A year ago, when I first came across Enlight, I was thrilled to see such a fun, creative and simple to use motion graphic app. I recommended it to everyone who commented on my IG stories and posts. If I needed more intricate edits there was the option to upgrade and I was willing. Suddenly, the same basic features that we’ve used for over a year have all been clipped with price tags. Not only does this cheapen the overall image of this app but it loses my support and the support of many of my creative friends. Let’s shoot for excellence in business ethics. In the long run it yields higher profits for all.
Love it

They killed animation in this latest update.
by Mandrous on 2021/02/12 03:17
No anchors, no speed, no loops. Totally terrible.
Animation has been nerfed
by w¡II on 2021/02/11 21:24
The latest update has removed the ability to make fluid animations by removing anchors and different motions. I purchased a lifetime subscription for this feature alone and now it’s gone. I can not currently recommend or use this product. If the developer can guide me on the process of a refund, I would greatly appreciate it.
Love this app

High Expectations Low Quality
by CaliiDoll on 2021/02/11 08:04
Created a beautiful GIF with vibrant colors and animation. Got it just right and downloaded. No resolution option and the saved GIF looks nothing like the high resolution one in the creator. Very low quality. Had to save in a high res video and use a secondary gif creator app... not what I was expecting from a paid app!

by JanieCo on 2021/02/09 01:48
I love this app and have a lot of fun with it, but you all really need to add more elements and more often. I love playing with photos but there isn’t enough of a variety.
Latest Update
by ttip82 on 2021/02/07 23:14
This is has been one of my favorite apps for the last several years and I have paid membership. I used it almost every day... until the latest update. No disrespect, but I am extremely disappointed about the changes made after this last update. Every feature that I used before is no longer there. No pins, no freeze, no bounce option... I have not been able to use the app since and it’s extremely frustrating. However, I’m still going to give a good rating because I have a paid subscription to several other apps by Lightricks that I absolutely love and use on the daily. I hope Lightricks will consider adding back the previous features to this app because I can’t use it the way it is, and I’ll have to cancel my subscription.

Anyway I hope you fix that and put in a guest option. Also please answer this review read the hole thing please😎.

Anchors, Paths, Speed removed
by 😎Constructive Critic😎 on 2021/02/05 02:10
This needs to be fixed, the Paths and Anchors provided more flexibility, now it is far less useful to move water in one direction or a sky that I like in another direction. This was a terrible update. Please revert back to the previous version where we had Paths, Anchors, and Speed!

The app is good, nice editing and stuff but this thing is literally almost everything cost money. There’s only a few things that don’t you can only have one element and a 4 choices of effects. And an alien pops up when I try to record something even when it’s free. Please make less things cost money and let me screen record I want cool stuff in my videos nice coloring, bright colors, sharp pictures, but I can’t bc everything cost money.
No fun anymore
by Backdoctor4u on 2021/01/29 20:30
Tried to use the app as always. The motion aspect is now available in “Pro” only. I tried to put in effects that are not marked “Pro” only. When you try to export your new pic you only have a choice of “removing Pro limits.” So you virtually cannot do anything without paying for the “Pro” version. This ruined the app. I just use the app for fun enhancements to my pics for Instagram. That’s it. Now you have to pay to do anything. This app is now ruined for me because of it. I would give it 0 stars if I could.

What happened to the animation functions?!
by staceyelyse on 2021/01/27 04:22
I was using this app for a few months and loving it!!! I would have given the app 5 stars but this week when I went to use the app, most of the animation functions were gone!! You can no longer apply geometric animation, freeze or pin areas of your image. I am super unhappy because I paid for a year and now the options I was using the most are gone... Please bring them back!
Don’t buy this!
by Beerus2020 on 2021/01/27 02:43
I purchased this app. Now, most of it’s blocked again. It worked fine for a few months. Now it’s as if I never purchased it. June 26th 2021, the developer contacted me about my review. I emailed the proof I purchased this crap. I paid 59.99. After a few months, it blocked me from accessing all the tools! You’ve been warned! Update June 26th 2021: Don’t bother with these people. They sent me another email to try their pro version which I still must pay for access. Scam!

Changes are crippling to the editing process
by Wilson Beamin on 2021/01/26 05:21
I had been a user of pixaloop for almost 2 years and now have been trying to grapple with motionleap. The biggest issue is the Paintbrush that highlights the motion instead of the lockmotion setting. Now it is near impossible to make fluent motions on the picture and they come out extremely tacky. Does anyone have a way to change this 😒
Animation is trash, now

This app is amazing i use with all my digital art to make them more fun an more life like, plus worth the music very nice touch, however i wish the animate part didn’t switch to pro, i’m not saying its bad just a little disappointing is all. well it may just me (i can’t spend that kind of money at least not yet) but overall still an amazing app hands down :)
Downgrade with each “update”
by Dah master of all on 2021/01/25 12:29
I’ve had this app since it was called Pixaloop. Loved it, and I used it every day mostly for the animation tool. Then a little while back you updated it and blocked the animation behind a paywall. I was super ticked from that firstly, but yknow what? I went and bought your extremely overpriced full version. No biggie. But now?? You remove all of the advanced tools in the latest update! Why did you feel the need to do that? I regret updating this app. I relied so much on those tools, and now they’re so simplified it boggles me how you thought it was a good idea. If there was a way to get back my money I would. Please, please listen to the other reviewers when we say we want those advanced tools back. I will be looking for other apps in the meantime. I hope I get a response as to why this decision was made and if you guys will be rolling back on that decision.
What happened?
by Cartejac000 on 2021/01/25 03:50
Great app but this recent update seems to of removed a lot of what i used before the update and cant find the tools anymore. Appears to of changed some of the edits as well
Please return path, anchor and freeze to animation menu
by AlunaLua on 2021/01/25 01:39
I would love to make a 5 star review but my workflow just came to a halt when I can no longer access path, anchor and freeze in motion leap when that was my go to tools in pixaloop. Please try and fix this problem and I will give you a resounding 5 star review. Thank you very much
Was cool until it stopped working.
by teewuane on 2021/01/24 19:22
I made many very cool animated video/photos. So cool that I paid for the lifetime membership. Then the last time I went to open the app everything stopped working. My animations I made no longer work and new photos I try to animate won’t play the animations I apply. Please fix, would love to update my review.
New animation option is restricting
by Youngsimba35 on 2021/01/24 16:38
I think this app is amazing it has helped me create really fun and interactive content for my social media and artist profile. The most recent update however changed the way you are able to animate the pictures and it seems to be very limiting to what you can really do without the option of the anchor, path, speed, and geometrics. Please change it back I know this is just one review but that was a major change in the wrong direction. Everything else is still amazing. Thank you!

I can’t do a thing and I really want to use this app. Please at least give us some features like use music. We can only do 2% of what this app is capable of so please respond and give me a honest opinion because this is kinda ridiculous.

Очень мало бесплатных эффектов) хотя, я понимаю, что за все нужно платить)
Animation was great
by tbc77 on 2021/01/22 06:00
The app has lot of effects which is excellent but at least few of them available for free that would be great .
Animations got dumbed down
by sjmedinamedina on 2021/01/22 00:35
So with the new update the animations are super garbage now, why dumb down what was great already? They got rid of the anchor tool, the freeze tool, I mean so much more. I was ready to pay for PRO but I completely changed my mind. This app was a game changer but now I’m not so convinced. And I sure don’t want or need that lame response that they’re pulling on everybody “Contact us for support”
Newly downgraded!
by Thatpersonovertheretyping on 2021/01/21 21:33
You used to have much more control over how the animations worked and now you have two options for brush or arrow... really? What a downgrade. Deleting promptly. Better apps out there
missing the old features
by pyrogirl on 2021/01/21 19:21
This has been my favorite editing /animating app for a specific photo series for several years. With the the latest upgrade and change in animation features I seem to have lost the ability to select spot (now their is only a paintbrush feature??). Please hear me developers and add that feature back! I don’t want to find a new editing program to continue this work!
Good, but limited.
by 𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬 on 2021/01/20 18:00
Good effects, but things like Beatloop custom should be free, and some more overlays. Otherwise the App is good.
nice
by evezezzz on 2021/01/19 07:19
so good
Music/beats
by Gina.523 on 2021/01/17 17:41
The Rock music is not what is displayed when you save it. It’s a different song and doesn’t even sound like Rock music
Not easy to use
by FAHAD TSNB on 2021/01/14 19:09
Not an easy App to use. They do not let you test before you pay for subscription. Update: Actually you can test the non-pro features for free. This is good. I can practice and then decide if I want to go for the full version. Thanks for the developer for the quick explanation. I will update the star rating after I test it for some time.
Wow!!!
by xicaindio on 2021/01/12 21:05

Amazing app!
No way to cancel subscription?
by Stlkid84 on 2021/01/11 15:40
How am I able to cancel the yearly subscription? I don’t see a “cancel” option, just an option to upgrade to a higher subscription.
This is the best game ever!
by leemhassem on 2021/01/10 12:51
Starting off ... This is the best editing app I come to! 5 stars yes Try it too! :3
Error messages.
by REDHOTLIPS 1951 on 2021/01/07 12:14
I still can’t post my pictures on my tagged.com site. Constantly receiving error messages. I written you two months ago and no one has replied. I will be deleting this app whenever my Year is up because no one has responded to my problems.
Ehh
by carter esteban on 2021/01/04 20:24
Your is good but why do you have to put a water mark? That really ruins the stuff you make so yeah...
Was Good Not As Much Anymore
by ThunderHorse157 on 2021/01/03 21:46
When I first got the app it was great! The animation movements were so nicely done and you could change between different animation styles. Was lacking in backgrounds but they fixed that in the update. But they did ruin the animations in the update in which I used the most. Now the animations are not as creative and your stuck with only one animation movement. They could’ve added the new animation but kept the other options as well. I’m extremely dissatisfied with that and will be using the app less because of that. I actually got the full version in order to do the creative animations and now that they scrapped that feature I might wanna just quit the purchase.
Pro
by ZoeClev on 2021/01/03 17:33
I got this app hoping to animate a photo obviously and I find out that you can only do one arrow without pro. You also can’t do any water animations. This is honestly just a really bad app with out the Pro version
Features cut
by stevencoolguy on 2021/01/03 17:31
Used to use this app a lot til they cut the “path” feature of moving pictures to pro tools only so now we have to pay , these businesses man
Love It! Worth every cent!
by Echo.Delta on 2021/01/03 06:23
Produce mind blowing edits with minimal effort! Incredibly intuitive even if you are intimidated by other editing apps. It’s actually the most I’ve ever spent on an app and it’s worth every cent! Missing a text tool however. Not sure why the developers have not included this (or have I overlooked it somehow?).
Beat loops
by $$$$$168$ on 2021/01/02 21:12
I wish they would have more music to choose from. I own a Mexican restaurant and it would have been great if they would have flamenco or Spanish guitar style music etc. This is a great app by the way! Rob
Don’t fall for the “free” version
by Bizzleio on 2021/01/02 18:02
This app extorts you into having to buy the “pro” version to actually export anything. Thanks for the editor’s choice apple, another extortion app! Make people pay upfront, you’ll lose download #s but at least it’ll be honest.
Animation glitch
by PleaseFixAnimatiion on 2021/01/02 17:23
I am a premium member of this app. I have really been enjoying it, until it comes to the animations feature. Unfortunately when the animation loop’s, there is a distinctive blink that appears on all the areas that were animated with the brush and direction. So every 5-10 seconds, there is a break in the flow and you see a blink. This has hurt many of my projects. I hope there will be a fix to this ASAP, because it’s extremely discouraging, and stops me from really being able to make my projects shine. The elements section is cool and you don’t get that blink between the loop, but the choices are limited and not updated enough. Main updates I see to that section is holiday add-one. I wish I can reach out to the creators and get a fix.
Bad gif resolution
by Beatz_op_ on 2021/01/02 01:13
Everything seems to be fine but whenever you save a gif it saves it in very poor resolution and i would like for this to be fixed immediately because i payed to unlock everything and i expect my gif to be as clear as its shown in the app.
I have fun with this app
by Aller milk on 2021/01/01 00:16
So far love it only part would be great have a refresh tab to start new.
Very disappointed
by Josean988 on 2020/12/31 19:09
I used to have this app and I enjoyed it. I was able to create animation on my pictures for free with no water mark or paying anything. I know it takes time and money to create and app but come on, put the app as a paid app from the beginning. Don't make us waste our time downlouding and app, edit photos and then ask for money. Just publish the app with the price and the people whom wants to pay, will download it. I don't recommend it anymore. Big disappointing app.
Being charged when I don’t want it

No skills? No problem!
by Lovebird730 on 2020/05/19 19:56
A long-time fan of the “original” Enlight photo editor, & a convert to Enlight Photofox, I was super excited when I saw they added an animation editor to the lineup! After using their photo editor(s) for about 3 years, I expected Pixaloop to be amazing, & they delivered. Its UI is so intuitive & friendly it borders on flirtatious! The layout/work canvas is crisp, clean & uncluttered. It has more tools/features than I could’ve asked for—plenty of options to create just about anything you dream up! There’s an especially large library of “effects”—light FX, pseudo camera movements, & a ton of overlays like rain, sparkles, fog, flames, butterflies etc etc etc! They’ve even expanded those sections/varieties since I first DL 👍 It’s enough to keep me interested & creating even after a year 😄 Very much an amateur to the graphic/digital arts, I’d never tried an animation app before; they appeared very technical & tedious. I knew Pixaloop would be that beginners-friendly program that can help even the most digitally &/or artistically illiterate create spectacular pieces 💕
Needs extreme amounts of work.
by ELECTRIC OUTLAW on 2019/04/01 12:57
Is not Apple Pencil friendly. (Has serious lag in this area). Does not follow desired path. Inadequate masking feature. Lacks extreme precision. Extremely sloppy. Lacks multiple layering within animation packs. No add feature... what if I want to add 10,000 butterflies? I’m not able to do this. Some of the features are very nice and very well animated but not enough layering options. Correct me if I’m wrong and not doing something right. I do feel this app has an extreme amount of potential and I downloaded it for obvious reasons. I suggest taking a lesson from#superimpose app and how their masking tools work. They are a very precise tool and things should be done in this fashion. I definitely think that you guys would benefit from that me being a beta tester for this tool. I am an accomplished artist. I am using iPad Pro 12.9” with the Apple Pencil, of course. Your tools are not matched to qualify using with the Apple Pencil. As well I had to pay to see what this app and goes instead of getting a late version. This makes me extremely cautious in having to pay to use your video lab application in which I I am very interested in using for my artwork. Again I would love to beta-test for you guys I would definitely upgrade to five stars if you were to fix these options that I have listed.
Here’s the thing
by Miss Winkler on 2020/09/23 01:48
I love this app, but it has one major, decent sized problem... I got this app and loved it, in fact I loved it so much I decided to become a premium member for a year. Paid the $60 myself (I was like 12). Next year comes around and I don’t use this as much anymore, don’t get me wrong it was great and it was so much better like this. So I canceled my subscription. Well I was looking back at some of the animations I did using the premium options and non of them would load! See, I prefer if my animation is “live” as my phone calls it, because it has a better effect. Well the editors of this app know as well, so unless you pay premium you are not going to be able do that. Anyway, I realize now that after my subscription time was up this happened. Interesting isn’t it? I paid $60 so I could animate save live and when I go to look back at it, it won’t work! Now I could go back and do it again, but like I said, cant use live unless you are a premium member. That was a major reason I got it! So if I don’t keep paying, I won’t be able to see anything I ever do with the premium?! That’s seems unfair is really all I’m trying to say. 😕
Neat
by nickname00019384748422 on 2019/12/11 03:47
First, the idea of the app is neat, but I will be deleting the enlight Pixaloop application as you have no option to export or save the animated picture to my photos (I am using an iPhone 11 Pro Max). With that being said I don’t want to upgrade to pro but in order to save any animated photo, you have to upgrade? This is not good user experience. I would charge money for the “pro” upgrade options and at least make it so the basic version can save the photo? Second, get a hyperlink added to your “contact us” option at the bottom of your HELP section, so users can be directed to their email with your email link attached. At least remove the “Pro” words above the options so it doesn’t lead users to believe they can save the photo or upload to Instagram for free.
Unable to export projects with pro subscription on iPad - EDITED
by SheWriter on 2020/07/05 13:23
I liked the free version of Pixaloop a lot so I upgraded to the paid one year pro version. It works fine on my phone, but when I am using it on my iPad (same Apple ID), it still tells me to upgrade and remove the pro limit. I should be able to use the app on both devices. I deinstalled and reinstalled the app, which makes it now possible for me to use the pro features on pictures (even though the app still displays the „pro only“ icon). But I am unable to export the projects in a better quality or in any format that is not supported in the free version. If I click „remove pro limit“ I am directed to the subscription screen, from where there is nowhere to go, because I don‘t want to subscribe double of course, plus, I get a pop up from Apple reminding me that I already subscribe to pro (which is correct). If anyone can help fix this, I would be grateful, because I‘m not wanting to pay for this and not be able to fully use it since I do most projects on my iPad. Updated on 7/5: There is actually a link underneath the subscription button saying „already paid?“ that allows one to put in your Apple ID password, I did not see that before, it is tiny, but it is there. I‘m still giving the app 4 stars because it could be a bit more up to date on weather/seasons and holidays when it comes to themes. It‘s July right now and it has rain overlays, fall leaves and haunted house themes. But otherwise I LOVE it!
Disappointment
by BrainierRain on 2020/02/23 00:22
I was first introduced to this app at the Apple Store. I loved it and immediately got it on my device. The first thing that popped up when I opened the app was it asking me to get their Pro Pack for like six dollars a month. I closed out of it, and began to edit a photo. I was all of a sudden extremely disappointed to see that only a very VERY small number of filters, exporting options, and editing tools are available to you if you do not have the Pro Pack. I soon realized that the app at the Apple Store was a demo, therefore every filter was unlocked. So, basically, if you get Pixaloop and don’t pay for the Pro Pack, you are essentially getting just a preview of the app with the Pro Pack.😕 I really really wanted to love this app, which is why I put two stars instead of one. Sadly, I will most likely will be deleting it soon due to the fact that you have to pay (MONTHLY) for access to all of the filters. Also, you can get a one time purchase but it’s sixty dollars which I will NOT pay. The pro pack is probably worth about five dollars (maybe ten, but that’s pushing it) for a one time purchase.
Actual review: Cool app that needs a strategy.
by CryOfDavid on 2019/06/17 04:40
It’s a fun little animation app. A cool way to take some social media posts up a notch. Here is the big problem.... If I am rating this app as a little fun photo app I would give it 5 stars. I would even pay a single .99 or maybe 1.99 fee for a pro version and recommend it to my friends. However, the problem is they are charging like this is an Adobe product. The monthly fee is absolutely silly for an app this featureless. It’s a fun little product that totally missed in the monetization method. I see this going one of two ways. Either add a mountain of continually expanding features, think Adobe products, or make this a one time .99 fee for the “pro” version. Otherwise, I guarantee most people will do what I do. Play with the very limited version for a week or so and never use it again. The devs built a cool little app. It would be sad to see it fade because of a poorly thought out compensation strategy.
Worth the Money for me..
by Mal3D on 2019/03/12 00:53
Very easy to use. Masking is not hard. You can zoom in for smaller details. Output is high quality. For me, 6 sec of 2k quality works best for Instagram. Love the lightning, rain, and fireworks overlays. Also, the fire element is totally dope. I used it on a ghost rider photo from the Long Beach Comic Expo. I’m having a blast using it. You can check out my malphotoz Instagram for proof. I have a desktop version of a much more expensive app, and I much prefer this. I love being able to do this all on my iPhone. Please keep adding overlays and elements. They are what really add to this. I purchased the one time price. Well worth the money IMHO. I have never left a better review for any other app. Keep up the great work!
Latest Update
by ttip82 on 2021/02/07 23:14
This is has been one of my favorite apps for the last several years and I have paid membership. I used it almost every day... until the latest update. No disrespect, but I am extremely disappointed about the changes made after this last update. Every feature that I used before is no longer there. No pins, no freeze, no bounce option... I have not been able to use the app since and it’s extremely frustrating. However, I’m still going to give a good rating because I have a paid subscription to several other apps by Lightricks that I absolutely love and use on the daily. I hope Lightricks will consider adding back the previous features to this app because I can’t use it the way it is, and I’ll have to cancel my subscription.
Easy and fun to create
by Jdhgvdjchxje on 2019/12/15 08:58
Ive never got a gif to work other than the little video clips many people call gifs. Thats not a gif, but with this app and a few dollars. Ive been making gifs for real for the first time ever. Im not good yet but with the help demo’s and a bit of practice, mine are getting better. The smoke realism's are fun to use plus the anchors and the direction paths. Depending on what you are doing or trying to do. Depends on how long it takes to make a gif the way you want it. I can even zoom in on the picture and fine tune what im trying to do. Hope a few more options are made for this app in the near future.
Don’t waste time or money
by Ben Kenon on 2019/06/23 13:24
First of all, I don’t like subscriptions- especially for one-trick-pony niche apps like this. The developers want $20 a year to add barely perceptible animations to your pics, like bobbing water or moving clouds. What?!? What you can accomplish with the free version of the app is laughably bad pseudo-animations that look cheap and/or silly. I assume the effects look much better if you subscribe, but what is my incentive to pay so much money for a subscription? True, one month is *only* $3.99- but I’d rather buy a coffee than animate clouds and water around grandpa. It sounds like your best deal is a $60(!!!) lifetime purchase BUT do no not put it past the devs to come up with Pixaloop 2 in two years for another $60. These are the same guys who made Enlight, after all (which I did purchase, and then it turned into a subscription-based app, rendering my original purchase pointless). If you look at all of their apps, every single one has a free or cheaper alternative without a subscription (like Snapseed or Pixelmator), or a subscription-based app (like Lightroom) that’s light-years ahead. It seems like Pixaloop is their most creative app, but a similar (but more realistic) effect can be had for free if you use a tripod and capture a Live Photo while everyone stands still for three seconds. Pass.
Neat concept, too expensive, should be able to buy individual features
by Patrickl27 on 2020/05/26 18:59
This app is a really cool concept, and goes perfectly with Live Photos, but unfortunately you can't export to Live Photos without paying $20 a year or $60 once. Without that, it's really not worth using at all. Videos are so much less convenient to glance at in the photo album, while Live Photos were pretty much made for this app! If there was an option to buy an individual feature for a few dollars, such as the Live Photo export, or a certain filter you wanted, that would be a lot more palatable of an expense. You'd definitely have my purchase! As it is though, I likely will only use the app once or twice, then forget about it as a random novelty.
Love the App...could use more frequent updates
by MusicalTravels on 2020/04/02 13:22
I truly like this app, and I purchased the pro for the one time fee. It’s a very cool concept and is pretty darn user friendly once you drill into it. My only issue/request is the content. For the amount charged, I do feel more frequent updates of content options would be great to see, specifically on the overlays and the elements that are available. For a while they seemed to at least change them up a little more frequently, but I haven’t seen one in a while. Weekly or monthly updates of available content would be the thing that would get me to a 5 star review. Aside from that, I enjoy the heck out of this app.
Deceptive Advertising in Action
by Kip Sikora on 2020/02/24 14:03
It’s a good idea that has been executed marginally well. My main complaint is that the preview includes animating a perfect circle using a ferris wheel as an example. Drawing a perfect circle by hand is impossible, especially on a touchscreen phone. I purchased the Pro version thinking that there might be a circle tool. Nope. After more than a week customer support finally returned my message and recommended placing individual points around the circular object I want to animate. Again, placing individual points to create a perfect circle is nearly impossible. My issue is the fact that the ad intimates the ease of creating a perfect circle when nothing could be further from the truth. It’s deceptive advertising in action and I won’t be renewing my subscription at the end of the year.
Suggestion For Better Experience
by ChaChisO on 2019/01/28 13:34
Your app looks nice and professional. However there are so many rip off apps, users are hesitant to click on anything with a subscription. I did not purchase your product due to the following two reasons. To allow users to have a great experience before purchasing or subscribing I would suggest the following: 1. You have easy access to purchase but not unsubscribe. This looks suspicious. Add unsubscribe button. Not that hard. 2. Like many users, I load apps when I see it advertised. I do a few things and then plan on doing the review later. When I finally get around to it the trial has expired. Suggestion: Give the user a couple of stock pictures and access to all the tools. This allows them to see how and if the product works as advertised. If they are comfortable, they would purchase.
Downgrade with each “update”
by Dah master of all on 2021/01/25 12:29
I’ve had this app since it was called Pixaloop. Loved it, and I used it every day mostly for the animation tool. Then a little while back you updated it and blocked the animation behind a paywall. I was super ticked from that firstly, but yknow what? I went and bought your extremely overpriced full version. No biggie. But now?? You remove all of the advanced tools in the latest update! Why did you feel the need to do that? I regret updating this app. I relied so much on those tools, and now they’re so simplified it boggles me how you thought it was a good idea. If there was a way to get back my money I would. Please, please listen to the other reviewers when we say we want those advanced tools back. I will be looking for other apps in the meantime. I hope I get a response as to why this decision was made and if you guys will be rolling back on that decision.
Love this app but definitely a few improvements that can be made
by Bellabuscus121 on 2019/06/06 20:04
For starters, please don’t make the holiday / special event overlays and assets be seasonal / temporary? Just make them available 24/7, don’t be silly. Also, it didn’t used to do this but now there seems to be a problem with the animation lines, now when I have multiple lines and continue to draw new ones, the new lines interfere with the old ones movement often stopping them completely. I’d also like for there to be a way to copy paste your frozen area drawn to the overlay erase, so I don’t have to trace the same complicated shape twice. A symmetry option for those tools would be a cherry on top. Overall love this program, it’s super close to being perfect.
Enlight Pixaloop
by BAR112 on 2019/04/28 15:36
It’s like that other one—without all the social bloat! I went ahead and purchased for the one-time fee; it’s totally worth it. Pixaloop is so easy to use to animate your photos; plus, they are adding new (animated) elements and overlays all the time. Also love the ability to erase parts of the overlays (other similar apps don’t allow this). In addition, a beautiful selection of professional photos to use (Unsplash, probably) is provided within the app. My only request would be to please allow us to add more than one element/layer, thus upping the creative uses of this fabulous app. Highly recommended!
Outstanding tools!
by BrianKann16 on 2020/01/30 19:38
Literally for more than a year I have searched for an App for the iPhone or software for my Mac that would allow me to make some of the image modifications that this one App does. Download it, dive in taking as many risks with your images as you want, knowing that it is SO simple to reverse anything you’ve done that you then don’t like or that wasn’t what you were trying to accomplish. The features are rich (download the additional tools you want). MORE powerful than some graphics and photo editing Apps that are much more expensive!
Easy to use but.....
by Diana Com on 2019/03/05 16:06
Update: Contact support and they cleared it up. I did not need to purchase a app for separate devices. They not only addressed my concerns but responded with in an hour. The suggested worked perfectly and I’m on to my next project. The 2 star is only for the upgrade policy. The app was easy enough to use. I was able to upload, edit a photo, experiment with the tons filters and save to IG in a couple hours. I expect the next project to go much faster. But...I upgraded to pro from my phone and now need to purchase again to use pro on my tablet. So it’s a nice app but be aware if you want to use on multiple devices you’ll pay double.
It’s pretty good!
by PuppyDog$1234 on 2020/05/27 20:32
I recommend this app! There’s not too many premium features which is nice! I only have one complaint, you can’t export with the premium! This is really upsetting. And I feel you need to realize not everyone can pay for things like that. If you could just make that one feature non premium I would really appreciate it! Have a great day and stay safe. Update: There is a way to export it!! You just cannot have any pro features on the photo! But if you wanted the pro features I guess you could either pay or you could just screenshot it!
I’m so upset that you can’t make it into a video!
by can't make video! on 2020/12/29 04:23
OK I know it’s a loop at all but you can’t OK I know it’s a loop at all but you can’t screen record it or make it into a video!… outrage!!!!I’m so upset that you couldn’t make it into a video it was so disappointing I took so much time on that to just realize oh wait you can’t make that into a video that’s nice I don’t have any Twitter Facebook or any of that bull crap I can’t believe you can’t make it into a video it was so disappointing when I realized that please change it but the rest of it it’s amazing it’s so fun to work with and so easy except one thing can you please also change the smoke affect and stuff it’s really hard to place in some places that’s all I ask please change it it really bothers me😡
good... if you have the money
by ha baa on 2020/05/30 03:24
honestly this is a super cool concept. the idea of bringing photos to life within minutes is amazing, and I think it’s great that you’re letting us do this. however, only the basic features are for free. I played around with this app for several weeks before realizing it wasn’t really what I thought it was. this isn’t the only app like this, all the editing apps in the pack are. without paying, you can export it as a video, but not a live photo or gif. there are some big disadvantages to not paying. if you’re considering getting the app for fun, just know that it’s not close to it’s full marketed potential if you don’t pay.
Amazing app. Just a minor thing.
by Love it but...please. on 2020/06/24 21:53
I virtually have nothing bad to say about this app. I’m thoroughly satisfied. Just 1 (not so) minor thing though. When I first acquired it, the 3D features had no extra decorations to them (clouds, butterflies, etc). The latest update added them, and personally, I feel the 3D effects were MUCH better ‘without’ these elements. Would it be possible to rather allow the user to add these elements from within another setting option, rather than force them as component of all 3D effects? I’d like that change back to the initial style :)
Amazing projects fast and simple
by Galochka007 on 2020/06/18 05:45
I created several beautiful animated pictures for Instagram in a minutes. And it’s easy and fun. Usually I don’t have a nerves to learn a photo redact apps, but this one so simple - I loaded, opened and started to do a project immediately and in first 5 minutes I had fantastic video from a standard photo. It’s not free, but it worth several bucks for the fun and profit you’ll have. Guys, you are amazing and thank you for this app! P.S. I wish I can change the speed of sky movement )
Kind of good app.....
by milagacha452 on 2020/11/13 03:19
When I opened this app I was excited and was hoping to make some cool videos and things like that. When I opened it up I was waiting quite awhile for this app to load. I went to go get some effects and I don’t want to mention but if your one of those people who HATE getting apps saying there free but then you have to get a subscription. I wasn’t to thrilled that half of the things I couldn’t use but I was still hoping that I could probably use a picture. I clicked on a picture then it froze and it kept on continuing. I exited it and went back in and I thought, maybe not. That’s just what I think of this app. I hope this is helpful to you.
Psh
by n@hn@hn@h on 2018/11/28 01:46
Sure, this app is neat. Moving pictures are pretty. Unfortunately, the impossibly short free trial period for the full app is pretty obviously designed to screw you out of $20 dollars (a year subscription). An app with users in mind would at the very least default to a monthly one ($3.99). Better yet, it wouldn’t rely on counterintuitive design to trick users into losing money at all. There should be information on how to unsubscribe IN the app! I shouldn’t have had to dig through reviews to find answers. And before I get the canned response from the developer about contacting you at any time with questions - I DID. Nobody responded, and something tells me if I’d waited for you to get around to me it would have conveniently happened after y’all charged my account. ✌🏼
Eh.

I used to love editing with this app for introductions on my roleplay page on Instagram. Sadly, that all went down when they made us pay for almost all the features, including the animated ones. There are barely any effect and animation tools you can use for this app anymore. Since i didn’t want to pay any money for this (considering that I don’t have any money), I decided to screen record it. HOWEVER, this alien figure popped up on the screen and told me to pay for the pro. I’m really frustrated with this app, and it makes me incredibly furious knowing that I have to basically pay to get the best features. I’m honestly on my urge to delete this app because of this.
O k but like.. why? 😃😀😐
by D Lyles on 2020/10/19 14:39
This apps great it has a reasonable amount of free stuff available for my broke pockets to use but... 💁‍♀️ w h y do you keep changing the way 3-D motion overlays work without telling me about it?! I was working on this project and I was on my way to use the f r e e 3-D motions available for me I realize “huh, the overlays have to be paid for? Ok I’ll just remove them!!” .... but you updated it ... and You literally did not tell me how to remove the overlays from the 3-D motion . Now listen, I most likely don’t make a lot due to my lack in IQ but, can you please just n o t do this all of a sudden? If you don’t want it to be free anymore, y’know what that’s fine but w h y do you not give actual updates of the crucial changes like this one?! 😩 (edit: yeah no you just completely ruined the app I’m out bro 💃🏿)
Worst subscription design
by moneygotstolen on 2018/12/04 16:40
You guys have done a very poor job of making it clear that you just go in and unsubscribe after deleting the app that it still will charge you’re account after deleting your poorly designed application from my phone almost instantly it turns out that a month later(today) it charged me $20 without a single heads up that I would be getting charged. Learn how to make a better system so you stop stealing people’s money. Considering that I can see that almost all of you’re reviews are people complaining that you designed a app built to just take my money. You should refund everyone who complained about being charged because there was no way to unsubscribe. Worst application ever made.
Was Good Not As Much Anymore
by ThunderHorse157 on 2021/01/03 21:46
When I first got the app it was great! The animation movements were so nicely done and you could change between different animation styles. Was lacking in backgrounds but they fixed that in the update. But they did ruin the animations in the update in which I used the most. Now the animations are not as creative and your stuck with only one animation movement. They could’ve added the new animation but kept the other options as well. I’m extremely dissatisfied with that and will be using the app less because of that. I actually got the full version in order to do the creative animations and now that they scrapped that feature I might wanna just quit the purchase.
They just want your money
by bigdawgskoob on 2020/04/07 16:28
I downloaded to see what it was about. Sadly, unlike other photo apps there are no free trials that I am aware of so all you can do is look at the filters until u pay for the app monthly. What you guys fail to realize is a free trial actually helps people determine the if it’s even worth putting 5.99 or in this case $60. It’s about gravitation... say if I use your filters on one of my pics during say a 3 day free trial and my audience loves it then I’ll probably buy it to keep using it. But due to the fact I can’t even export a basic picture, people like myself can’t test the waters to even see if it s worth buying. So you guys get 1 star until something changes. Better luck with the next customer
Amazing
by greyangeldesigns on 2018/10/07 11:24
4 stars only because it’s not as completely intuitive as I would like it to be. It took some googling to read up on how best to utilize this app, but once I did I was able to immediately make some pretty incredible images. Works best if your photo already contains part of an object or scenery that would normally “move” in real life—but, that being said, it’s also cool to see motion on something that would normally be static. Slowing the motion down adds drama, and the optional overlays for things like a gentle snowfall are just artistically wonderful. This is FUN.

by Neptunite_ on 2020/09/10 14:21
I’ve been using this app for over a year now and it’s been amazing to me. Once again, I LOVE this app!! Water effects were added, new flame effects! I’m loving all of it! As constructive criticism, I’d looooove to see earth effects in the elements section! Like levitating rocks and sand flying around. I would also love to see wind effects! Tornados, slipstreams, etc. The elements section is my favorite part of pixaloop since I always make elemental edits. Hope to see it soon!! Thank you for this app 💙💙💙
New animation option is restricting
by Youngsimba35 on 2021/01/24 16:38
I think this app is amazing it has helped me create really fun and interactive content for my social media and artist profile. The most recent update however changed the way you are able to animate the pictures and it seems to be very limiting to what you can really do without the option of the anchor, path, speed, and geometrics. Please change it back I know this is just one review but that was a major change in the wrong direction. Everything else is still amazing. Thank you!
I love it!
by Turleycat on 2021/02/15 09:35
This is a great app. It’s very fun to use and I like making gifs and videos! I haven’t spotted any bugs yet. It’s fun to make animations on here. I’m glad I downloaded this app. I learnt how to make an animation in 1 day. I love how easy it is to make effects. For example, I can make smoke effect all I have to do is highlight then boom. I have the smoke effect. This is a really great app I highly recommend it. You should definitely download this. And I am not one of those bots to put good reviews, this a real review.
Very cool app
by Apple Store Review Team on 2018/11/26 19:25
I don’t usually write reviews , but you guys have impressed me yet again with an awesome app! Keep up the good work! And for anyone who’s a little skeptical of whether or not you should download , you can animate photos in the free version as advertised on Instagram; which is tons of fun, and when you’re done with your projects it gives the options to save into your camera roll and to also post your project on social media! Totally recommend this app , 10/10 !
In the past I would have given 4 stars
by 🌸 kitten❤️ on 2020/12/12 23:20
So in the past before a new update I was able to make decent controlled animations without paying $60 dollars. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the majority of users here are 1 young or 2 poor, I am poor and young I can’t pay $60 dollars for an app. Now with the new update it’s not worth paying, there’s so little controls now that the developers have taken away the basic function of this app for free users. I can no longer make decent animations with what is given to me and even if I payed the animations would still be subpar at best thanks to the developers taking away Anchors all together
Enjoyed it, but now not working
by MTML63 on 2020/09/05 15:23
I sent an email asking for help. As of today my App is not opening. Stuck on the logo page. I pay for the pro version and I have not been able to use it for two days now and before that I was able to use it but for about a week I couldn’t see the picture choices, had to click on it to see what I was choosing. Hope this bug is fixed. I use this app for my business.

Thank U...Amazing App Im having so Much Fun , its been a while that an App came along that makes Me spend Hours playing around with new ideas and making cool Art... I even paid for the Annual Subscription. I was Wondering Maybe in an Update if U could Add a few things... or possibly since im sorta new to this App i may not be using it correctly... Can U add More Elements , The Real Life Type Elements... Allow Apple Music for the Beats...? Finally , Occasionally when i add a sky a Photo it doesn’t render in the spots i want, so can U Add a Brush/Eraser to the Sky tab ? And Possible allow Us to choose the direction the clouds travel...like i said , maybe These things are already in the App but so far i only see the Eraser/Brush Under Only Certain sections... Anyway, Thanks 🙏🏼 and Keep it Coming i Love Video and Photo Apps 11:11
app problem why not full features unlock
by shchander on 2019/04/20 17:24
I am using the paid version of your app already. Now when after editing the video, I am trying to save it says it is for paid version only but when I have already paid yearly fees, why am I getting this option and it doesn't save the video. Also, when i go to paid section, it says already paid. So why am i facing this problem please help and resolve this issue, asap.

This makes the difference in my post from here on out it makes me not want to post without this feature I just wish I was more witty with how I can put music in my video I haven’t figure it out yet but I will eventually as for now the music isn’t merge overlaying the video hey that might just be the feature I got to look for to see if I can do it . Yes your apps are the best I would like to be a field liaison for others to get the app in a official way here in portland Oregon and across the world
First day at scam school.
by News feed problems on 2019/10/18 18:30
What an awesome photo editing app! I thought to myself as I navigated the features becoming acquainted with their uses. As I finished my first project, I was thoroughly impressed and eager to save and share this little bit of photo art. That’s when I realized you have to pay to move anything out or off the app itself. WOW! What is it for, practice? I was actually gonna upgrade to pro just for the features that would be unlocked, but after the realization that this was simply a pathetic attempt at a classic bait and switch, shell game scam, I decided to remove every app from this company and look for one of the many alternatives that do not try and employ confidence game tactics. SMDH
Effects are amazing
by Jason Engineer on 2020/10/10 11:04
This is a powerful program. Very fun game o work with. The UI has a couple of bugs going back menus and I would like to be able to add multiple overlays. The water feature is not very intuitive to me as it causes pictures that a really have water in them to move, if you want to add water like to a picture of the desert go to elements. All that said it is a blessing to be able to work with such powerful software
Good but still limited and expensive
by goldenlotus12 on 2019/12/06 22:41
A pretty great app, better than all it’s competitors. That said PixaMotion is close to it in terms of function and is 6 so this is about 500% mark-up for a better GUI and a few more layers. That said two things that I do not like are the inability to control the speed of the pans or transparent png layers and no ability to edit the color per layer or to stack multiple layers on top of the same image. The other component I do not like is the inability to use the app offline, I try to stay offline as much as possible this makes the app a pain.
Love this app!
by Argize on 2020/05/21 16:44
I’ve used this app now for quite some time and absolutely love it! I use this for instagram creations and the animations/effects options are so abundant. I can create very advanced looking animations with this app. Also the user interface is so intuitive and easy to use. I’ve downloaded other similar apps that are like learning to speak a foreign language. I don’t write many reviews but Pixaloop is a total winner!
All Saves “Canceled”
by FenderPickV87C on 2020/05/03 20:41
This app is pretty great, BUT every single time I try to save one of my works it gets to 100% then says “canceled”. I came back to look at reviews and see if this happened to anyone else. I saw you can apparently only save your works if you purchase the app. Therefore, I paid $5.99 for the month to use your app because I felt it was worth my money. HOWEVER, after purchasing the app I still get the “canceled” at the end of it being saved (even though I absolutely DO NOT press the “Cancel” button because I want it to be saved). This is crazy. Please fix this. If not I want a refund because I paid for an app that will not work.
Early Days
by Alain-Christian on 2018/09/14 07:42
Given the high bar raised by their other apps, I can’t in good conscious give this anything than 3 stars. I should really be giving it a 2 because it just feels really average. It’s barebones and feels like demo software. I KNOW it’s can be better than this. I’ve already sent them extensive feedback. I look forward to raising my score in the future. But it’s a great company. Check out their other apps. I mean, check this one out too. But right now it takes too much work to get the results you want. It’s missing a lot of drawing tools.
Animation
by Pokemon_Master on 2021/02/16 21:54
Fix the animation controls, bring back the old menu with the anchors, speed, and other options. I pay for this app for I could use all of the functions but now it’s really difficult to edit the pictures. I used to love the app because it was so easy for mobile users but after the update it’s really not as friendly, I would like the anchors back or an option to turn the on or off at least. I really don’t wanna get PLOTAGRAPH but they are the ones with a user friendly interface, motion leap was my go to easy as pie editing tool, now it’s the one app I’ll just delete in a few weeks if no update fixes this.

Longtime fan but miss the old animation tools!
by odawni on 2021/02/23 18:54
I’ve been using Motionleap (AKA Pixaloop) for 2 years and it’s been my favorite animation app. I’ve recommended it to many digital artists interested in animating their images. Recently, the animation tool was changed and I find myself feeling frustrated because the quality of animation and versatility to animate images has decreased significantly. The animated vs non-animated parts of an image looks chunky and I miss using anchor points and the ability to animate separate portions of an image. In this new version, all sections of an image that are selected for animation get pulled by every arrows placed in an image. You can no longer animate parts of an image separately and I feel sad and frustrated every time I want to be able to do that. I still use Motionleap as my go-to animation app but I’ve been searching for another app that has animation tools more similar to the old version. PixaMotion is the closest I’ve found but Motionleap is superior in its other features and I don’t want to leave my dear Motionleap. Please bring the old animation tools back!! You changed a good thing!! Whyyyyyyyyyy???? Thanks for reading and considering my request! @fuschia.blue on IG
Re: New Animator/Motion Update
by Chingu103 on 2021/02/23 12:13
You guys why did you switch up the animation effect on the app?? There was literally nothing wrong with it! Using anchors enabled me to fine tune the process and the last update eliminated them. Now it's only freezing or unfreezing only. bring back Anchors please, literally the only thing I don't like about the update. Please bring them back!
Easy to learn and pretty cool

They destroyed this fine app
by Not Dreaming on 2021/02/21 07:14
Not only did the new updates destroy the best animation features of this app, the developers responses are at best condescending. The fast and precise animation process has now been replaced by tiring finger painting that leaves hard edges to the animation fields... very unrealistic, the kind of “ tell tale” calling cards of poor digital art. Previously, the animations were convincing. No more. I subscribe to various art apps where I pay for elements - the items that can be added to your artworks. This is the only app I know of that TAKES AWAY the elements you pay for, than asks you to name the missing elements instead of admitting they’ve taken them away. Ok devs...where’s the super hero pack we all PAID for. And all the rest. They demand you subscribe to get all the elements. So you subscribe, they have your $, and then remove the reasons you subscribed. I am SO glad I subscribed for only a year. If I’d paid for a lifetime subscription only to see the devs take away the features that attracted me... MAN would I be upset. Pixeloop was great, used it every day. Now, I’m sad to even launch it. It simply can’t do what it used to regardless of what the devs tell you here. So, where are the animation features they removed? Why, they’re in ANOTHER App now, a terribly stripped down version of the original pixeloop! This speaks of greed and nothing more. Take away what your original sponsors paid for, fracture the apps, and expect people to buy them all to try to get what decent, considerate devs give you all in one app. This has forced me over to Werble, a much better-looking photo animator. I’ll come back to pixeloop, if it ever returns. But one star for the devs destruction of this apps most important feature. Last year I would have given it five. Seriously, avoid this app, who knows what they’ll take away from you next! Plus Horrible mistreatment of their customers (I think devs who do this, which is a form of theft since you paid for these items, should be kicked out of the App Store). From one artist to the next, these people will rip you off. Avoid.
Much Less Control Offered Now!
by DominoCA on 2021/02/21 07:09
Before the change to the “Motionleap” name, you could control path animation far better! Changing the length and location of arrows once gave you “move amount” and “speed” control, but not now, and WORST, the “anchors” (which, I remind you, so many similar apps still offer as a basic feature) are gone, meaning that with areas moving different ways, they now merge into each other in a glitchy, ugly way, and you can’t prevent that! The new, “dumbed down” path animation makes the app worth FAR less than before. Hey developer... here’s a rule this coder has learned applies to virtually ALL software updates of any kind: offering a simpler option, even putting it up front with the rest behind an (easy to find) “Advanced” button is okay... taking key features away is not. Worse, the only direct response I’ve seen to those complaints is “contact us”, individually, which is nonsense (and a real cop-out). Everyone reading reviews here DESERVES one of these replies, posted publicly on reviews that raise the issue: 1. a note explaining for any reader that the feature is still available somewhere (I strongly doubt it, as I’ve looked HARD, but since both app and company website lack any detailed “help” section, it’s possible), and “here’s where that button is found”, or 2. one of two honest replies, either: A. “That feature was costing too much for us to maintain, and we decided it wasn’t worth it, so if losing it is a deal-breaker, our app is no longer right for you - and if you paid for any length of subscription in advance, contact us for a refund.” Or B. “We’re sorry we removed these features from our app, and we realize now it was a poor decision. Look for an update with those features back in an “Advanced” view on (date here)”. Developer: please provide a direct, honest, PUBLIC response to the complaints of feature losses with the “Motionleap” versions of the app. Preferably, also provide a respectful answer to those “free” users who are justifiably upset about the removal of any “free” use of the path feature - not just the insulting “many features are free” response when you’ve removed the one that is arguably THE purpose of the app. I’ve been quite embarrassed to have encouraged friends to try this app out and have them find they’re unable to make a video with even the simplest version of motion effects.
Did not work for me
by Miltomic on 2021/02/20 16:26
Downloaded the app hoping to do some cool things with photos in edit, but in order to do so you have to purchase a “pro” plan. I tried to make the one time purchase of $60 to get access to all their features but I didn’t work. After confirming the purchase, I was stuck in a perpetual load screen and the app wouldn’t refresh. I thought maybe it was just a mistake but even after closing the app and reopening, the problem still persisted. Lost $90 total just trying to purchase the pro features. Receipts show in my PayPal but the app doesn’t work. Waste of time and money
Horrible downgrade in the update.
by OOTSfilm on 2021/02/19 19:19
I’ve been paying for this app for a while now and made some excellent motion art. The simplified animate effect has really limited the art I’m able to create in this app. Really disappointing.

by salad._.fingerS on 2021/02/18 04:16
This app is good and all it’s pretty easy to use and makes the photos great but you cant do anything without money. I don’t have any money so this is a problem. I just got this app to use for TikToks but I can’t export it without paying and it won’t let me screen record it either. If your broke don’t get this.
Please Help fix this Problem!
by TazureChang on 2021/02/17 17:13
So At the beginning of using this app for me in 2021 January, the app had multiple functions for me to animate my photos, but For some reason, There’s is now only two options for me to animate with, and that is “select” and “direction” which is awful. Is this a bug that needs fixing? Please help out! I really don’t like giving this that star rating, but I use this app all the time so please address this issue with my app.
Are you kidding me??!?
by Willow🦄 on 2021/02/16 22:15
I installed this app one or two years ago, and I thought it was super cool. After a while, I stopped using it. One day I decided I would use it again since I had just gone on a trip and took tons of pictures of waterfalls. *sigh* It took me half an hour to find it because they had changed the name from Pixleloop to Motionleap. When I finally found it I could not even use it because it had changed so much. :( It was cool before but now it is just boring.

Dumbed Down
by True party king on 2021/02/15 19:50
Used to love this app but now that they removed a bunch of features like anchor points, the animations you can create are far more limited than they used to be. Why would you REMOVE basic features?
I love it!

Best app in the world

It’s so easy to use I love it
Suddenly fees? A problem.
by GG Ermaine on 2021/02/12 06:58
A year ago, when I first came across Enlight, I was thrilled to see such a fun, creative and simple to use motion graphic app. I recommended it to everyone who commented on my IG stories and posts. If I needed more intricate edits there was the option to upgrade and I was willing. Suddenly, the same basic features that we’ve used for over a year have all been clipped with price tags. Not only does this cheapen the overall image of this app but it loses my support and the support of many of my creative friends. Let’s shoot for excellence in business ethics. In the long run it yields higher profits for all.
Love it

They killed animation in this latest update.
by Mandrous on 2021/02/12 03:17
No anchors, no speed, no loops. Totally terrible.
Animation has been nerfed
by w¡II on 2021/02/11 21:24
The latest update has removed the ability to make fluid animations by removing anchors and different motions. I purchased a lifetime subscription for this feature alone and now it’s gone. I can not currently recommend or use this product. If the developer can guide me on the process of a refund, I would greatly appreciate it.
Love this app
by HF12$ on 2021/02/11 20:33
Easy to use, fun way and to improve posts and have great options in the free version

The animation function. 🥺
High Expectations Low Quality
by CaliiDoll on 2021/02/11 08:04
Created a beautiful GIF with vibrant colors and animation. Got it just right and downloaded. No resolution option and the saved GIF looks nothing like the high resolution one in the creator. Very low quality. Had to save in a high res video and use a secondary gif creator app... not what I was expecting from a paid app!

Needs more updates!!
by JanieCo on 2021/02/09 01:48
I love this app and have a lot of fun with it, but you all really need to add more elements and more often. I love playing with photos but there isn’t enough of a variety.
Latest Update
by ttip82 on 2021/02/07 23:14
This is has been one of my favorite apps for the last several years and I have paid membership. I used it almost every day... until the latest update. No disrespect, but I am extremely disappointed about the changes made after this last update. Every feature that I used before is no longer there. No pins, no freeze, no bounce option... I have not been able to use the app since and it’s extremely frustrating. However, I’m still going to give a good rating because I have a paid subscription to several other apps by Lightricks that I absolutely love and use on the daily. I hope Lightricks will consider adding back the previous features to this app because I can’t use it the way it is, and I’ll have to cancel my subscription.

So at first I thought this app was gonna be great but it turned out to be really sucky it’s only because we had to log in. isn’t there like a guest option somewhere!? like that is so bad. Anyway I hope you fix that and put in a guest option. Also please answer this review read the hole thing please😎.

Anchors, Paths, Speed removed
by 😎Constructive Critic😎 on 2021/02/05 02:10
This needs to be fixed, the Paths and Anchors provided more flexibility, now it is far less useful to move water in one direction or a sky that I like in another direction. This was a terrible update. Please revert back to the previous version where we had Paths, Anchors, and Speed!

by Thecloser101 on 2021/02/04 05:37
You took out the animation arrows? We can’t animate it anymore?? Why would you do this? This so bad... put it back... it was the only reason to buy this was to make your own creative animations based on arrows and freezing spots etc... go back tot he way it was ASAP thanks
Enjoyable

I wish I could get my money back! The app doesn’t really do what it tried to make you think it will. There’s tons of apps out there for free or way cheaper that do a better job! This app is junk!

What did you do? I preferred the movements BEFORE I up dated! I do not like this new version at all. Restore what I had before the latest update.

by cnejdj on 2021/01/29 23:04
The app is good, nice editing and stuff but this thing is literally almost everything cost money. There’s only a few things that don’t you can only have one element and a 4 choices of effects. And an alien pops up when I try to record something even when it’s free. Please make less things cost money and let me screen record I want cool stuff in my videos nice coloring, bright colors, sharp pictures, but I can’t bc everything cost money.
No fun anymore
by Backdoctor4u on 2021/01/29 20:30
Tried to use the app as always. The motion aspect is now available in “Pro” only. I tried to put in effects that are not marked “Pro” only. When you try to export your new pic you only have a choice of “removing Pro limits.” So you virtually cannot do anything without paying for the “Pro” version. This ruined the app. I just use the app for fun enhancements to my pics for Instagram. That’s it. Now you have to pay to do anything. This app is now ruined for me because of it. I would give it 0 stars if I could.

What happened to the animation functions?!
by staceyelyse on 2021/01/27 04:22
I was using this app for a few months and loving it!!! I would have given the app 5 stars but this week when I went to use the app, most of the animation functions were gone!! You can no longer apply geometric animation, freeze or pin areas of your image. I am super unhappy because I paid for a year and now the options I was using the most are gone... Please bring them back!
Don’t buy this!
by Beerus2020 on 2021/01/27 02:43
I purchased this app. Now, most of it’s blocked again. It worked fine for a few months. Now it’s as if I never purchased it. June 26th 2021, the developer contacted me about my review. I emailed the proof I purchased this crap. I paid 59.99. After a few months, it blocked me from accessing all the tools! You’ve been warned! Update June 26th 2021: Don’t bother with these people. They sent me another email to try their pro version which I still must pay for access. Scam!

Changes are crippling to the editing process
by Wilson Beamin on 2021/01/26 05:21
I had been a user of pixaloop for almost 2 years and now have been trying to grapple with motionleap. The biggest issue is the Paintbrush that highlights the motion instead of the lockmotion setting. Now it is near impossible to make fluent motions on the picture and they come out extremely tacky. Does anyone have a way to change this 😒
Animation is trash, now
by TheGAM3Show on 2021/01/26 00:26

by True DaisyD on 2021/01/25 20:29
This app is amazing i use with all my digital art to make them more fun an more life like, plus worth the music very nice touch, however i wish the animate part didn’t switch to pro, i’m not saying its bad just a little disappointing is all. well it may just me (i can’t spend that kind of money at least not yet) but overall still an amazing app hands down :)
Downgrade with each “update”
by Dah master of all on 2021/01/25 12:29
I’ve had this app since it was called Pixaloop. Loved it, and I used it every day mostly for the animation tool. Then a little while back you updated it and blocked the animation behind a paywall. I was super ticked from that firstly, but yknow what? I went and bought your extremely overpriced full version. No biggie. But now?? You remove all of the advanced tools in the latest update! Why did you feel the need to do that? I regret updating this app. I relied so much on those tools, and now they’re so simplified it boggles me how you thought it was a good idea. If there was a way to get back my money I would. Please, please listen to the other reviewers when we say we want those advanced tools back. I will be looking for other apps in the meantime. I hope I get a response as to why this decision was made and if you guys will be rolling back on that decision.
What happened?
by Cartejac000 on 2021/01/25 03:50
Great app but this recent update seems to of removed a lot of what i used before the update and cant find the tools anymore. Appears to of changed some of the edits as well
Please return path, anchor and freeze to animation menu
by AlunaLua on 2021/01/25 01:39
I would love to make a 5 star review but my workflow just came to a halt when I can no longer access path, anchor and freeze in motion leap when that was my go to tools in pixaloop. Please try and fix this problem and I will give you a resounding 5 star review. Thank you very much
Was cool until it stopped working.
by teewuane on 2021/01/24 19:22
I made many very cool animated video/photos. So cool that I paid for the lifetime membership. Then the last time I went to open the app everything stopped working. My animations I made no longer work and new photos I try to animate won’t play the animations I apply. Please fix, would love to update my review.
New animation option is restricting
by Youngsimba35 on 2021/01/24 16:38
I think this app is amazing it has helped me create really fun and interactive content for my social media and artist profile. The most recent update however changed the way you are able to animate the pictures and it seems to be very limiting to what you can really do without the option of the anchor, path, speed, and geometrics. Please change it back I know this is just one review but that was a major change in the wrong direction. Everything else is still amazing. Thank you!
I paid for a year but can’t access pro

This app is so good and I understand, you guys want the bag 💰but cmon on. This is legit too much. I can’t do a thing and I really want to use this app. Please at least give us some features like use music. We can only do 2% of what this app is capable of so please respond and give me a honest opinion because this is kinda ridiculous.

Animations got dumbed down
by sjmedinamedina on 2021/01/22 00:35
So with the new update the animations are super garbage now, why dumb down what was great already? They got rid of the anchor tool, the freeze tool, I mean so much more. I was ready to pay for PRO but I completely changed my mind. This app was a game changer but now I’m not so convinced. And I sure don’t want or need that lame response that they’re pulling on everybody “Contact us for support”
Newly downgraded!
by Thatpersonovertheretyping on 2021/01/21 21:33
You used to have much more control over how the animations worked and now you have two options for brush or arrow... really? What a downgrade. Deleting promptly. Better apps out there
missing the old features
by pyrogirl on 2021/01/21 19:21
This has been my favorite editing /animating app for a specific photo series for several years. With the the latest upgrade and change in animation features I seem to have lost the ability to select spot (now their is only a paintbrush feature??). Please hear me developers and add that feature back! I don’t want to find a new editing program to continue this work!
Good, but limited.
by 𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬 on 2021/01/20 18:00
Good effects, but things like Beatloop custom should be free, and some more overlays. Otherwise the App is good.

Not easy to use
by FAHAD TSNB on 2021/01/14 19:09
Not an easy App to use. They do not let you test before you pay for subscription. Update: Actually you can test the non-pro features for free. This is good. I can practice and then decide if I want to go for the full version. Thanks for the developer for the quick explanation. I will update the star rating after I test it for some time.

Was Good Not As Much Anymore
by ThunderHorse157 on 2021/01/03 21:46
When I first got the app it was great! The animation movements were so nicely done and you could change between different animation styles. Was lacking in backgrounds but they fixed that in the update. But they did ruin the animations in the update in which I used the most. Now the animations are not as creative and your stuck with only one animation movement. They could’ve added the new animation but kept the other options as well. I’m extremely dissatisfied with that and will be using the app less because of that. I actually got the full version in order to do the creative animations and now that they scrapped that feature I might wanna just quit the purchase.
Pro
by ZoeClev on 2021/01/03 17:33
I got this app hoping to animate a photo obviously and I find out that you can only do one arrow without pro. You also can’t do any water animations. This is honestly just a really bad app with out the Pro version
Features cut

Produce mind blowing edits with minimal effort! Incredibly intuitive even if you are intimidated by other editing apps. It’s actually the most I’ve ever spent on an app and it’s worth every cent! Missing a text tool however. Not sure why the developers have not included this (or have I overlooked it somehow?).
Beat loops
by $$$$$168$ on 2021/01/02 21:12
I wish they would have more music to choose from. I own a Mexican restaurant and it would have been great if they would have flamenco or Spanish guitar style music etc. This is a great app by the way! Rob
Don’t fall for the “free” version
by Bizzleio on 2021/01/02 18:02
This app extorts you into having to buy the “pro” version to actually export anything. Thanks for the editor’s choice apple, another extortion app! Make people pay upfront, you’ll lose download #s but at least it’ll be honest.
Animation glitch
by PleaseFixAnimatiion on 2021/01/02 17:23
I am a premium member of this app. I have really been enjoying it, until it comes to the animations feature. Unfortunately when the animation loop’s, there is a distinctive blink that appears on all the areas that were animated with the brush and direction. So every 5-10 seconds, there is a break in the flow and you see a blink. This has hurt many of my projects. I hope there will be a fix to this ASAP, because it’s extremely discouraging, and stops me from really being able to make my projects shine. The elements section is cool and you don’t get that blink between the loop, but the choices are limited and not updated enough. Main updates I see to that section is holiday add-one. I wish I can reach out to the creators and get a fix.
Bad gif resolution
by Beatz_op_ on 2021/01/02 01:13
Everything seems to be fine but whenever you save a gif it saves it in very poor resolution and i would like for this to be fixed immediately because i payed to unlock everything and i expect my gif to be as clear as its shown in the app.

Very disappointed
by Josean988 on 2020/12/31 19:09
I used to have this app and I enjoyed it. I was able to create animation on my pictures for free with no water mark or paying anything. I know it takes time and money to create and app but come on, put the app as a paid app from the beginning. Don't make us waste our time downlouding and app, edit photos and then ask for money. Just publish the app with the price and the people whom wants to pay, will download it. I don't recommend it anymore. Big disappointing app.

by Lovebird730 on 2020/05/19 19:56
A long-time fan of the “original” Enlight photo editor, & a convert to Enlight Photofox, I was super excited when I saw they added an animation editor to the lineup! After using their photo editor(s) for about 3 years, I expected Pixaloop to be amazing, & they delivered. Its UI is so intuitive & friendly it borders on flirtatious! The layout/work canvas is crisp, clean & uncluttered. It has more tools/features than I could’ve asked for—plenty of options to create just about anything you dream up! There’s an especially large library of “effects”—light FX, pseudo camera movements, & a ton of overlays like rain, sparkles, fog, flames, butterflies etc etc etc! They’ve even expanded those sections/varieties since I first DL 👍 It’s enough to keep me interested & creating even after a year 😄 Very much an amateur to the graphic/digital arts, I’d never tried an animation app before; they appeared very technical & tedious. I knew Pixaloop would be that beginners-friendly program that can help even the most digitally &/or artistically illiterate create spectacular pieces 💕
Needs extreme amounts of work.
by ELECTRIC OUTLAW on 2019/04/01 12:57
Is not Apple Pencil friendly. (Has serious lag in this area). Does not follow desired path. Inadequate masking feature. Lacks extreme precision. Extremely sloppy. Lacks multiple layering within animation packs. No add feature... what if I want to add 10,000 butterflies? I’m not able to do this. Some of the features are very nice and very well animated but not enough layering options. Correct me if I’m wrong and not doing something right. I do feel this app has an extreme amount of potential and I downloaded it for obvious reasons. I suggest taking a lesson from#superimpose app and how their masking tools work. They are a very precise tool and things should be done in this fashion. I definitely think that you guys would benefit from that me being a beta tester for this tool. I am an accomplished artist. I am using iPad Pro 12.9” with the Apple Pencil, of course. Your tools are not matched to qualify using with the Apple Pencil. As well I had to pay to see what this app and goes instead of getting a late version. This makes me extremely cautious in having to pay to use your video lab application in which I I am very interested in using for my artwork. Again I would love to beta-test for you guys I would definitely upgrade to five stars if you were to fix these options that I have listed.
Here’s the thing
by Miss Winkler on 2020/09/23 01:48
I love this app, but it has one major, decent sized problem... I got this app and loved it, in fact I loved it so much I decided to become a premium member for a year. Paid the $60 myself (I was like 12). Next year comes around and I don’t use this as much anymore, don’t get me wrong it was great and it was so much better like this. So I canceled my subscription. Well I was looking back at some of the animations I did using the premium options and non of them would load! See, I prefer if my animation is “live” as my phone calls it, because it has a better effect. Well the editors of this app know as well, so unless you pay premium you are not going to be able do that. Anyway, I realize now that after my subscription time was up this happened. Interesting isn’t it? I paid $60 so I could animate save live and when I go to look back at it, it won’t work! Now I could go back and do it again, but like I said, cant use live unless you are a premium member. That was a major reason I got it! So if I don’t keep paying, I won’t be able to see anything I ever do with the premium?! That’s seems unfair is really all I’m trying to say. 😕
Neat
by nickname00019384748422 on 2019/12/11 03:47
First, the idea of the app is neat, but I will be deleting the enlight Pixaloop application as you have no option to export or save the animated picture to my photos (I am using an iPhone 11 Pro Max). With that being said I don’t want to upgrade to pro but in order to save any animated photo, you have to upgrade? This is not good user experience. I would charge money for the “pro” upgrade options and at least make it so the basic version can save the photo? Second, get a hyperlink added to your “contact us” option at the bottom of your HELP section, so users can be directed to their email with your email link attached. At least remove the “Pro” words above the options so it doesn’t lead users to believe they can save the photo or upload to Instagram for free.
Unable to export projects with pro subscription on iPad - EDITED
by SheWriter on 2020/07/05 13:23
I liked the free version of Pixaloop a lot so I upgraded to the paid one year pro version. It works fine on my phone, but when I am using it on my iPad (same Apple ID), it still tells me to upgrade and remove the pro limit. I should be able to use the app on both devices. I deinstalled and reinstalled the app, which makes it now possible for me to use the pro features on pictures (even though the app still displays the „pro only“ icon). But I am unable to export the projects in a better quality or in any format that is not supported in the free version. If I click „remove pro limit“ I am directed to the subscription screen, from where there is nowhere to go, because I don‘t want to subscribe double of course, plus, I get a pop up from Apple reminding me that I already subscribe to pro (which is correct). If anyone can help fix this, I would be grateful, because I‘m not wanting to pay for this and not be able to fully use it since I do most projects on my iPad. Updated on 7/5: There is actually a link underneath the subscription button saying „already paid?“ that allows one to put in your Apple ID password, I did not see that before, it is tiny, but it is there. I‘m still giving the app 4 stars because it could be a bit more up to date on weather/seasons and holidays when it comes to themes. It‘s July right now and it has rain overlays, fall leaves and haunted house themes. But otherwise I LOVE it!

I was first introduced to this app at the Apple Store. I loved it and immediately got it on my device. The first thing that popped up when I opened the app was it asking me to get their Pro Pack for like six dollars a month. I closed out of it, and began to edit a photo. I was all of a sudden extremely disappointed to see that only a very VERY small number of filters, exporting options, and editing tools are available to you if you do not have the Pro Pack. I soon realized that the app at the Apple Store was a demo, therefore every filter was unlocked. So, basically, if you get Pixaloop and don’t pay for the Pro Pack, you are essentially getting just a preview of the app with the Pro Pack.😕 I really really wanted to love this app, which is why I put two stars instead of one. Sadly, I will most likely will be deleting it soon due to the fact that you have to pay (MONTHLY) for access to all of the filters. Also, you can get a one time purchase but it’s sixty dollars which I will NOT pay. The pro pack is probably worth about five dollars (maybe ten, but that’s pushing it) for a one time purchase.
Actual review: Cool app that needs a strategy.
by CryOfDavid on 2019/06/17 04:40
It’s a fun little animation app. A cool way to take some social media posts up a notch. Here is the big problem.... If I am rating this app as a little fun photo app I would give it 5 stars. I would even pay a single .99 or maybe 1.99 fee for a pro version and recommend it to my friends. However, the problem is they are charging like this is an Adobe product. The monthly fee is absolutely silly for an app this featureless. It’s a fun little product that totally missed in the monetization method. I see this going one of two ways. Either add a mountain of continually expanding features, think Adobe products, or make this a one time .99 fee for the “pro” version. Otherwise, I guarantee most people will do what I do. Play with the very limited version for a week or so and never use it again. The devs built a cool little app. It would be sad to see it fade because of a poorly thought out compensation strategy.
Worth the Money for me..
by Mal3D on 2019/03/12 00:53
Very easy to use. Masking is not hard. You can zoom in for smaller details. Output is high quality. For me, 6 sec of 2k quality works best for Instagram. Love the lightning, rain, and fireworks overlays. Also, the fire element is totally dope. I used it on a ghost rider photo from the Long Beach Comic Expo. I’m having a blast using it. You can check out my malphotoz Instagram for proof. I have a desktop version of a much more expensive app, and I much prefer this. I love being able to do this all on my iPhone. Please keep adding overlays and elements. They are what really add to this. I purchased the one time price. Well worth the money IMHO. I have never left a better review for any other app. Keep up the great work!
Latest Update
by ttip82 on 2021/02/07 23:14
This is has been one of my favorite apps for the last several years and I have paid membership. I used it almost every day... until the latest update. No disrespect, but I am extremely disappointed about the changes made after this last update. Every feature that I used before is no longer there. No pins, no freeze, no bounce option... I have not been able to use the app since and it’s extremely frustrating. However, I’m still going to give a good rating because I have a paid subscription to several other apps by Lightricks that I absolutely love and use on the daily. I hope Lightricks will consider adding back the previous features to this app because I can’t use it the way it is, and I’ll have to cancel my subscription.
Easy and fun to create
by Jdhgvdjchxje on 2019/12/15 08:58
Ive never got a gif to work other than the little video clips many people call gifs. Thats not a gif, but with this app and a few dollars. Ive been making gifs for real for the first time ever. Im not good yet but with the help demo’s and a bit of practice, mine are getting better. The smoke realism's are fun to use plus the anchors and the direction paths. Depending on what you are doing or trying to do. Depends on how long it takes to make a gif the way you want it. I can even zoom in on the picture and fine tune what im trying to do. Hope a few more options are made for this app in the near future.
Don’t waste time or money
by Ben Kenon on 2019/06/23 13:24
First of all, I don’t like subscriptions- especially for one-trick-pony niche apps like this. The developers want $20 a year to add barely perceptible animations to your pics, like bobbing water or moving clouds. What?!? What you can accomplish with the free version of the app is laughably bad pseudo-animations that look cheap and/or silly. I assume the effects look much better if you subscribe, but what is my incentive to pay so much money for a subscription? True, one month is *only* $3.99- but I’d rather buy a coffee than animate clouds and water around grandpa. It sounds like your best deal is a $60(!!!) lifetime purchase BUT do no not put it past the devs to come up with Pixaloop 2 in two years for another $60. These are the same guys who made Enlight, after all (which I did purchase, and then it turned into a subscription-based app, rendering my original purchase pointless). If you look at all of their apps, every single one has a free or cheaper alternative without a subscription (like Snapseed or Pixelmator), or a subscription-based app (like Lightroom) that’s light-years ahead. It seems like Pixaloop is their most creative app, but a similar (but more realistic) effect can be had for free if you use a tripod and capture a Live Photo while everyone stands still for three seconds. Pass.
Neat concept, too expensive, should be able to buy individual features
by Patrickl27 on 2020/05/26 18:59
This app is a really cool concept, and goes perfectly with Live Photos, but unfortunately you can't export to Live Photos without paying $20 a year or $60 once. Without that, it's really not worth using at all. Videos are so much less convenient to glance at in the photo album, while Live Photos were pretty much made for this app! If there was an option to buy an individual feature for a few dollars, such as the Live Photo export, or a certain filter you wanted, that would be a lot more palatable of an expense. You'd definitely have my purchase! As it is though, I likely will only use the app once or twice, then forget about it as a random novelty.
Love the App...could use more frequent updates
by MusicalTravels on 2020/04/02 13:22
I truly like this app, and I purchased the pro for the one time fee. It’s a very cool concept and is pretty darn user friendly once you drill into it. My only issue/request is the content. For the amount charged, I do feel more frequent updates of content options would be great to see, specifically on the overlays and the elements that are available. For a while they seemed to at least change them up a little more frequently, but I haven’t seen one in a while. Weekly or monthly updates of available content would be the thing that would get me to a 5 star review. Aside from that, I enjoy the heck out of this app.
Deceptive Advertising in Action
by Kip Sikora on 2020/02/24 14:03
It’s a good idea that has been executed marginally well. My main complaint is that the preview includes animating a perfect circle using a ferris wheel as an example. Drawing a perfect circle by hand is impossible, especially on a touchscreen phone. I purchased the Pro version thinking that there might be a circle tool. Nope. After more than a week customer support finally returned my message and recommended placing individual points around the circular object I want to animate. Again, placing individual points to create a perfect circle is nearly impossible. My issue is the fact that the ad intimates the ease of creating a perfect circle when nothing could be further from the truth. It’s deceptive advertising in action and I won’t be renewing my subscription at the end of the year.
Suggestion For Better Experience
by ChaChisO on 2019/01/28 13:34
Your app looks nice and professional. However there are so many rip off apps, users are hesitant to click on anything with a subscription. I did not purchase your product due to the following two reasons. To allow users to have a great experience before purchasing or subscribing I would suggest the following: 1. You have easy access to purchase but not unsubscribe. This looks suspicious. Add unsubscribe button. Not that hard. 2. Like many users, I load apps when I see it advertised. I do a few things and then plan on doing the review later. When I finally get around to it the trial has expired. Suggestion: Give the user a couple of stock pictures and access to all the tools. This allows them to see how and if the product works as advertised. If they are comfortable, they would purchase.
Downgrade with each “update”
by Dah master of all on 2021/01/25 12:29
I’ve had this app since it was called Pixaloop. Loved it, and I used it every day mostly for the animation tool. Then a little while back you updated it and blocked the animation behind a paywall. I was super ticked from that firstly, but yknow what? I went and bought your extremely overpriced full version. No biggie. But now?? You remove all of the advanced tools in the latest update! Why did you feel the need to do that? I regret updating this app. I relied so much on those tools, and now they’re so simplified it boggles me how you thought it was a good idea. If there was a way to get back my money I would. Please, please listen to the other reviewers when we say we want those advanced tools back. I will be looking for other apps in the meantime. I hope I get a response as to why this decision was made and if you guys will be rolling back on that decision.
Love this app but definitely a few improvements that can be made
by Bellabuscus121 on 2019/06/06 20:04
For starters, please don’t make the holiday / special event overlays and assets be seasonal / temporary? Just make them available 24/7, don’t be silly. Also, it didn’t used to do this but now there seems to be a problem with the animation lines, now when I have multiple lines and continue to draw new ones, the new lines interfere with the old ones movement often stopping them completely. I’d also like for there to be a way to copy paste your frozen area drawn to the overlay erase, so I don’t have to trace the same complicated shape twice. A symmetry option for those tools would be a cherry on top. Overall love this program, it’s super close to being perfect.
Enlight Pixaloop
by BAR112 on 2019/04/28 15:36
It’s like that other one—without all the social bloat! I went ahead and purchased for the one-time fee; it’s totally worth it. Pixaloop is so easy to use to animate your photos; plus, they are adding new (animated) elements and overlays all the time. Also love the ability to erase parts of the overlays (other similar apps don’t allow this). In addition, a beautiful selection of professional photos to use (Unsplash, probably) is provided within the app. My only request would be to please allow us to add more than one element/layer, thus upping the creative uses of this fabulous app. Highly recommended!
Outstanding tools!
by BrianKann16 on 2020/01/30 19:38
Literally for more than a year I have searched for an App for the iPhone or software for my Mac that would allow me to make some of the image modifications that this one App does. Download it, dive in taking as many risks with your images as you want, knowing that it is SO simple to reverse anything you’ve done that you then don’t like or that wasn’t what you were trying to accomplish. The features are rich (download the additional tools you want). MORE powerful than some graphics and photo editing Apps that are much more expensive!
Easy to use but.....
by Diana Com on 2019/03/05 16:06
Update: Contact support and they cleared it up. I did not need to purchase a app for separate devices. They not only addressed my concerns but responded with in an hour. The suggested worked perfectly and I’m on to my next project. The 2 star is only for the upgrade policy. The app was easy enough to use. I was able to upload, edit a photo, experiment with the tons filters and save to IG in a couple hours. I expect the next project to go much faster. But...I upgraded to pro from my phone and now need to purchase again to use pro on my tablet. So it’s a nice app but be aware if you want to use on multiple devices you’ll pay double.
It’s pretty good!
by PuppyDog$1234 on 2020/05/27 20:32
I recommend this app! There’s not too many premium features which is nice! I only have one complaint, you can’t export with the premium! This is really upsetting. And I feel you need to realize not everyone can pay for things like that. If you could just make that one feature non premium I would really appreciate it! Have a great day and stay safe. Update: There is a way to export it!! You just cannot have any pro features on the photo! But if you wanted the pro features I guess you could either pay or you could just screenshot it!
I’m so upset that you can’t make it into a video!
by can't make video! on 2020/12/29 04:23
OK I know it’s a loop at all but you can’t OK I know it’s a loop at all but you can’t screen record it or make it into a video!… outrage!!!!I’m so upset that you couldn’t make it into a video it was so disappointing I took so much time on that to just realize oh wait you can’t make that into a video that’s nice I don’t have any Twitter Facebook or any of that bull crap I can’t believe you can’t make it into a video it was so disappointing when I realized that please change it but the rest of it it’s amazing it’s so fun to work with and so easy except one thing can you please also change the smoke affect and stuff it’s really hard to place in some places that’s all I ask please change it it really bothers me😡
good... if you have the money
by ha baa on 2020/05/30 03:24
honestly this is a super cool concept. the idea of bringing photos to life within minutes is amazing, and I think it’s great that you’re letting us do this. however, only the basic features are for free. I played around with this app for several weeks before realizing it wasn’t really what I thought it was. this isn’t the only app like this, all the editing apps in the pack are. without paying, you can export it as a video, but not a live photo or gif. there are some big disadvantages to not paying. if you’re considering getting the app for fun, just know that it’s not close to it’s full marketed potential if you don’t pay.
Amazing app. Just a minor thing.
by Love it but...please. on 2020/06/24 21:53
I virtually have nothing bad to say about this app. I’m thoroughly satisfied. Just 1 (not so) minor thing though. When I first acquired it, the 3D features had no extra decorations to them (clouds, butterflies, etc). The latest update added them, and personally, I feel the 3D effects were MUCH better ‘without’ these elements. Would it be possible to rather allow the user to add these elements from within another setting option, rather than force them as component of all 3D effects? I’d like that change back to the initial style :)
Amazing projects fast and simple
by Galochka007 on 2020/06/18 05:45
I created several beautiful animated pictures for Instagram in a minutes. And it’s easy and fun. Usually I don’t have a nerves to learn a photo redact apps, but this one so simple - I loaded, opened and started to do a project immediately and in first 5 minutes I had fantastic video from a standard photo. It’s not free, but it worth several bucks for the fun and profit you’ll have. Guys, you are amazing and thank you for this app! P.S. I wish I can change the speed of sky movement )
Kind of good app.....
by milagacha452 on 2020/11/13 03:19
When I opened this app I was excited and was hoping to make some cool videos and things like that. When I opened it up I was waiting quite awhile for this app to load. I went to go get some effects and I don’t want to mention but if your one of those people who HATE getting apps saying there free but then you have to get a subscription. I wasn’t to thrilled that half of the things I couldn’t use but I was still hoping that I could probably use a picture. I clicked on a picture then it froze and it kept on continuing. I exited it and went back in and I thought, maybe not. That’s just what I think of this app. I hope this is helpful to you.
Psh
by n@hn@hn@h on 2018/11/28 01:46
Sure, this app is neat. Moving pictures are pretty. Unfortunately, the impossibly short free trial period for the full app is pretty obviously designed to screw you out of $20 dollars (a year subscription). An app with users in mind would at the very least default to a monthly one ($3.99). Better yet, it wouldn’t rely on counterintuitive design to trick users into losing money at all. There should be information on how to unsubscribe IN the app! I shouldn’t have had to dig through reviews to find answers. And before I get the canned response from the developer about contacting you at any time with questions - I DID. Nobody responded, and something tells me if I’d waited for you to get around to me it would have conveniently happened after y’all charged my account. ✌🏼
Eh.
by little baby blue on 2020/11/16 16:20
I used to love editing with this app for introductions on my roleplay page on Instagram. Sadly, that all went down when they made us pay for almost all the features, including the animated ones. There are barely any effect and animation tools you can use for this app anymore. Since i didn’t want to pay any money for this (considering that I don’t have any money), I decided to screen record it. HOWEVER, this alien figure popped up on the screen and told me to pay for the pro. I’m really frustrated with this app, and it makes me incredibly furious knowing that I have to basically pay to get the best features. I’m honestly on my urge to delete this app because of this.
O k but like.. why? 😃😀😐
by D Lyles on 2020/10/19 14:39
This apps great it has a reasonable amount of free stuff available for my broke pockets to use but... 💁‍♀️ w h y do you keep changing the way 3-D motion overlays work without telling me about it?! I was working on this project and I was on my way to use the f r e e 3-D motions available for me I realize “huh, the overlays have to be paid for? Ok I’ll just remove them!!” .... but you updated it ... and You literally did not tell me how to remove the overlays from the 3-D motion . Now listen, I most likely don’t make a lot due to my lack in IQ but, can you please just n o t do this all of a sudden? If you don’t want it to be free anymore, y’know what that’s fine but w h y do you not give actual updates of the crucial changes like this one?! 😩 (edit: yeah no you just completely ruined the app I’m out bro 💃🏿)
Worst subscription design
by moneygotstolen on 2018/12/04 16:40
You guys have done a very poor job of making it clear that you just go in and unsubscribe after deleting the app that it still will charge you’re account after deleting your poorly designed application from my phone almost instantly it turns out that a month later(today) it charged me $20 without a single heads up that I would be getting charged. Learn how to make a better system so you stop stealing people’s money. Considering that I can see that almost all of you’re reviews are people complaining that you designed a app built to just take my money. You should refund everyone who complained about being charged because there was no way to unsubscribe. Worst application ever made.
Was Good Not As Much Anymore
by ThunderHorse157 on 2021/01/03 21:46
When I first got the app it was great! The animation movements were so nicely done and you could change between different animation styles. Was lacking in backgrounds but they fixed that in the update. But they did ruin the animations in the update in which I used the most. Now the animations are not as creative and your stuck with only one animation movement. They could’ve added the new animation but kept the other options as well. I’m extremely dissatisfied with that and will be using the app less because of that. I actually got the full version in order to do the creative animations and now that they scrapped that feature I might wanna just quit the purchase.
They just want your money
by bigdawgskoob on 2020/04/07 16:28
I downloaded to see what it was about. Sadly, unlike other photo apps there are no free trials that I am aware of so all you can do is look at the filters until u pay for the app monthly. What you guys fail to realize is a free trial actually helps people determine the if it’s even worth putting 5.99 or in this case $60. It’s about gravitation... say if I use your filters on one of my pics during say a 3 day free trial and my audience loves it then I’ll probably buy it to keep using it. But due to the fact I can’t even export a basic picture, people like myself can’t test the waters to even see if it s worth buying. So you guys get 1 star until something changes. Better luck with the next customer
Amazing
by greyangeldesigns on 2018/10/07 11:24
4 stars only because it’s not as completely intuitive as I would like it to be. It took some googling to read up on how best to utilize this app, but once I did I was able to immediately make some pretty incredible images. Works best if your photo already contains part of an object or scenery that would normally “move” in real life—but, that being said, it’s also cool to see motion on something that would normally be static. Slowing the motion down adds drama, and the optional overlays for things like a gentle snowfall are just artistically wonderful. This is FUN.
4 words: Water, Fire, Earth, Air
by Neptunite_ on 2020/09/10 14:21
I’ve been using this app for over a year now and it’s been amazing to me. Once again, I LOVE this app!! Water effects were added, new flame effects! I’m loving all of it! As constructive criticism, I’d looooove to see earth effects in the elements section! Like levitating rocks and sand flying around. I would also love to see wind effects! Tornados, slipstreams, etc. The elements section is my favorite part of pixaloop since I always make elemental edits. Hope to see it soon!! Thank you for this app 💙💙💙
New animation option is restricting
by Youngsimba35 on 2021/01/24 16:38
I think this app is amazing it has helped me create really fun and interactive content for my social media and artist profile. The most recent update however changed the way you are able to animate the pictures and it seems to be very limiting to what you can really do without the option of the anchor, path, speed, and geometrics. Please change it back I know this is just one review but that was a major change in the wrong direction. Everything else is still amazing. Thank you!
I love it!
by Turleycat on 2021/02/15 09:35
This is a great app. It’s very fun to use and I like making gifs and videos! I haven’t spotted any bugs yet. It’s fun to make animations on here. I’m glad I downloaded this app. I learnt how to make an animation in 1 day. I love how easy it is to make effects. For example, I can make smoke effect all I have to do is highlight then boom. I have the smoke effect. This is a really great app I highly recommend it. You should definitely download this. And I am not one of those bots to put good reviews, this a real review.
Very cool app
by Apple Store Review Team on 2018/11/26 19:25
I don’t usually write reviews , but you guys have impressed me yet again with an awesome app! Keep up the good work! And for anyone who’s a little skeptical of whether or not you should download , you can animate photos in the free version as advertised on Instagram; which is tons of fun, and when you’re done with your projects it gives the options to save into your camera roll and to also post your project on social media! Totally recommend this app , 10/10 !
In the past I would have given 4 stars
by 🌸 kitten❤️ on 2020/12/12 23:20
So in the past before a new update I was able to make decent controlled animations without paying $60 dollars. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the majority of users here are 1 young or 2 poor, I am poor and young I can’t pay $60 dollars for an app. Now with the new update it’s not worth paying, there’s so little controls now that the developers have taken away the basic function of this app for free users. I can no longer make decent animations with what is given to me and even if I payed the animations would still be subpar at best thanks to the developers taking away Anchors all together
Enjoyed it, but now not working
by MTML63 on 2020/09/05 15:23
I sent an email asking for help. As of today my App is not opening. Stuck on the logo page. I pay for the pro version and I have not been able to use it for two days now and before that I was able to use it but for about a week I couldn’t see the picture choices, had to click on it to see what I was choosing. Hope this bug is fixed. I use this app for my business.

And Possible allow Us to choose the direction the clouds travel...like i said , maybe These things are already in the App but so far i only see the Eraser/Brush Under Only Certain sections... Anyway, Thanks 🙏🏼 and Keep it Coming i Love Video and Photo Apps 11:11
app problem why not full features unlock
by shchander on 2019/04/20 17:24
I am using the paid version of your app already. Now when after editing the video, I am trying to save it says it is for paid version only but when I have already paid yearly fees, why am I getting this option and it doesn't save the video. Also, when i go to paid section, it says already paid. So why am i facing this problem please help and resolve this issue, asap.

This makes the difference in my post from here on out it makes me not want to post without this feature I just wish I was more witty with how I can put music in my video I haven’t figure it out yet but I will eventually as for now the music isn’t merge overlaying the video hey that might just be the feature I got to look for to see if I can do it . Yes your apps are the best I would like to be a field liaison for others to get the app in a official way here in portland Oregon and across the world
First day at scam school.
by News feed problems on 2019/10/18 18:30
What an awesome photo editing app! I thought to myself as I navigated the features becoming acquainted with their uses. As I finished my first project, I was thoroughly impressed and eager to save and share this little bit of photo art. That’s when I realized you have to pay to move anything out or off the app itself. WOW! What is it for, practice? I was actually gonna upgrade to pro just for the features that would be unlocked, but after the realization that this was simply a pathetic attempt at a classic bait and switch, shell game scam, I decided to remove every app from this company and look for one of the many alternatives that do not try and employ confidence game tactics. SMDH
Effects are amazing
by Jason Engineer on 2020/10/10 11:04
This is a powerful program. Very fun game o work with. The UI has a couple of bugs going back menus and I would like to be able to add multiple overlays. The water feature is not very intuitive to me as it causes pictures that a really have water in them to move, if you want to add water like to a picture of the desert go to elements. All that said it is a blessing to be able to work with such powerful software
Good but still limited and expensive
by goldenlotus12 on 2019/12/06 22:41
A pretty great app, better than all it’s competitors. That said PixaMotion is close to it in terms of function and is 6 so this is about 500% mark-up for a better GUI and a few more layers. That said two things that I do not like are the inability to control the speed of the pans or transparent png layers and no ability to edit the color per layer or to stack multiple layers on top of the same image. The other component I do not like is the inability to use the app offline, I try to stay offline as much as possible this makes the app a pain.
Love this app!
by Argize on 2020/05/21 16:44
I’ve used this app now for quite some time and absolutely love it! I use this for instagram creations and the animations/effects options are so abundant. I can create very advanced looking animations with this app. Also the user interface is so intuitive and easy to use. I’ve downloaded other similar apps that are like learning to speak a foreign language. I don’t write many reviews but Pixaloop is a total winner!
All Saves “Canceled”
by FenderPickV87C on 2020/05/03 20:41
This app is pretty great, BUT every single time I try to save one of my works it gets to 100% then says “canceled”. I came back to look at reviews and see if this happened to anyone else. I saw you can apparently only save your works if you purchase the app. Therefore, I paid $5.99 for the month to use your app because I felt it was worth my money. HOWEVER, after purchasing the app I still get the “canceled” at the end of it being saved (even though I absolutely DO NOT press the “Cancel” button because I want it to be saved). This is crazy. Please fix this. If not I want a refund because I paid for an app that will not work.
Early Days
by Alain-Christian on 2018/09/14 07:42
Given the high bar raised by their other apps, I can’t in good conscious give this anything than 3 stars. I should really be giving it a 2 because it just feels really average. It’s barebones and feels like demo software. I KNOW it’s can be better than this. I’ve already sent them extensive feedback. I look forward to raising my score in the future. But it’s a great company. Check out their other apps. I mean, check this one out too. But right now it takes too much work to get the results you want. It’s missing a lot of drawing tools.
Animation
by Pokemon_Master on 2021/02/16 21:54
Fix the animation controls, bring back the old menu with the anchors, speed, and other options. I pay for this app for I could use all of the functions but now it’s really difficult to edit the pictures. I used to love the app because it was so easy for mobile users but after the update it’s really not as friendly, I would like the anchors back or an option to turn the on or off at least. I really don’t wanna get PLOTAGRAPH but they are the ones with a user friendly interface, motion leap was my go to easy as pie editing tool, now it’s the one app I’ll just delete in a few weeks if no update fixes this.
